Oct. 25th here.


I'm using my Manzanita Tree Branches. I'm getting them from our family property so they are free to me!! Woo hoo!


Some I will decorate with Orchids.  Others I will include bundles of flowers and some other green mossy things I've seen at the flower marts.  But way cheaper because I'll be making my own arrangements.

maybe you could consider using a few peonies in a high quality real touch silk flower! and surround them with diffrent real flowers and real greenery!no one but you and the florist would know! (just a suggestion) you could talk 2 your florist about it.... i know soooo many of you are against high quality real touch silk flowers but i have seen them and i have worked with them! they are not soooo bad =D

That totally sucks!!! I am an October 2009 bride and was set on peonies too after sorting through tons of photos of flowers. I can't believe I never thought of flowers being in and out of seasons this whole time. =(
